  • The vast selection in the food court is beyond description.I had a grilled cheese sandwich that was thick and dripping delicious. Then I had two bacon cream donuts. Everything was freshly made. 
  • You can get there from market street, an imposing structure located at the center of the University District connecting Philadelphia with the rest of the surrounding countries. Numerous dining options and Interior shops. From there I took the train to New York.
